The 'My Heart Will Go On' singer captivates audiences with her elegance and bravery as she attends the premiere of her documentary 'I Am: Celine Dion', revealing her 17-year-long struggle with Stiff Person Syndrome.

AceShowbiz - On Monday evening, June 17, music icon Celine Dion was the epitome of grace at the screening of her much-awaited documentary, "I Am: Celine Dion", held at the Paris Theater in New York City. The 56-year-old star showcased a timeless cream-colored ensemble, featuring a silky white blouse adorned with a chic bow and a matching maxi skirt. Her outfit was perfected by a silver belt and sparkling diamond accessories, with her iconic blonde hair cascading loosely around her shoulders.

The documentary, directed by Irene Taylor and set for a June 25 release on Prime Video, chronicles Celine's journey with the rare neurological condition, Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS). As described by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, SPS is a progressive disorder affecting muscle control, leading to stiffness, spasms and extreme sensitivity to noise, emotional distress and touch.

Despite the challenges posed by SPS, Celine remains resilient. "It didn't take anything away from me. I'm going to go back onstage, even if I have to crawl," she passionately declared during an interview with Hoda Kotb.

The documentary offers an intimate look into her life from the moment of diagnosis. It portrays her struggles and reveals her determination not to let the condition define her. Even though SPS significantly affects her daily life and has impacted her vocal abilities, Celine's spirit remains unbroken. "I am Celine Dion because today my voice will be heard for the first time, not just because I have to, or because I need to. It’s because I want to and I miss it," she added.

The screening was an emotional affair, with Celine's 23-year-old son, RC Angelil, providing unwavering support by her side. His presence, along with the comprehensive portrayal of her journey, struck a chord with the audience, highlighting the importance of family and support in battling such conditions.

"I Am: Celine Dion" is produced by Amazon MGM Studios and features a stellar production team, including Irene Taylor, Tom Mackay, Stacy Lorts, Denis Savage, Krista Wegener, Shane Carter, Julie Begey Seureau, and executive producer Dave Platel. The documentary not only sheds light on Celine's personal struggles but also aims to raise awareness about SPS, inspiring countless individuals facing similar challenges.

Despite the setbacks and the prolonged absence from the stage, Celine's dedication to her music and her fans shines bright. Her story stands as a testament to human resilience and the unyielding will to persevere.
